This track is from the theatre show Music is Torture which is touring Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness from 18 May to 1 June. This new piece of gig theatre tells the story of a struggling music producer, Jake, who discovers that his music is being used to torture political prisoners and charts his ensuing moral dilemma. Essentially a show about selling out, while also reflecting on how people respond to global conflict and how people respond to fear of terrorism.
